The Erie St. Clair LHIN is creating sub-regions, or local planning areas, as a means to improve health care planning and better coordinate health care services in each local community.

While ESC residents can continue to receive health care wherever they need it, focusing on smaller areas to plan health service delivery makes sense: our region is large, diverse, and is a unique mix of urban and rural areas. We know that health care needs and the way we access health care services vary among people living in different parts of our region. With the goal of improved patient and client health outcomes, sub-regions will help us to:

  • effectively plan, evaluate, and improve our local health care system
  • focus on delivering and providing access-to-care based on community needs
  • improve care coordination and support easier transitions for patients between acute, primary, home and community, and long-term care settings
  • improve population health and equity in health outcomes
